trainers directly re their future protocols. An easy way to teach kids yoga nidra (and improve sleep) Yoga Nidra is my new favourite practice. It’s so easy yet so relaxing and it helps me stay in touch with my body which (if I neglect it) becomes sore/achey due to the time I spend at the computer or slouched on the sofa watching Netflix!

What does it mean if we feel ‘ungrounded’?
This is a question I ask my Connected Kids
students when they are learning to teach kids meditation.
It is one of the simplest ways to remedy our energy yet we often don’t notice what ‘being ungrounded’ is (until things really go pear-shaped!)
Being ungrounded means feeling overwhelmed unable to think clearly in the fight/flight/freeze response sensitive to others/environment triggering strong reactions unable to sleep easily poor coordination poor attention on a task never completing anything wanting to eat and graze tension in the body unable to relax and switch off
I know this is an issue that many adults struggle with – both in the classroom and at home.
So my next online talk will be about this –
giving you tips and mindful ideas that help you and your kids to self-regulate their behaviour… more peacefully.

Creating a space to teach mindfulness to kids with autism
We were asked a question about the types of tools people could use if they wanted to teach their kids (who are on the autistic spectrum)
how to feel calmer and less stressed using mindful activities.
” I will be moving into a purpose built unit for children with autism shortly and I have to kit out the sensory room. I’m wondering if you can suggest anything in particular that would be beneficial.”
We write about this subject all the time…particularly in the 2nd book – “
However we have taught thousands of people how to teach kids meditation, and thought that many of our
Connected Kids Tutors would have great, practical advice.
We were right!
Here are some wonderful ideas that may
help your kids on the spectrum bring their energy back into balance with meditation and mindfulness.
